keep it simple

share a flower.  three images…

14-020 Bagana x Venus of Willendorf

lean orange and green

do i need to say more ?  perhaps.  can the saying be in the seeing ?  well there is a reason for words.  can the saying come before the seeing ?   sometimes that is best not done.  sometimes it takes a while to see.  and a while longer to put the seeing into saying.  saying that paces itself with seeing and comprehending.  rather than jumping to half the explanation.  three images…

red

this one should be a cross of Bagana and Venus of Willendorf.  i like the red with the green throat.  how it came to be red puzzles me.  Bagana is orange and Venus of Willendorf is purple.  then again why should i deprive the daylilies the fun of perplexing my expectations.  either way i do like the look.  it is lanky.  it dances.  three images…

post quick

come back early in the morning and find that the flower did just fine without words…

three images…

purple layers

another seedling.  actually two from the same cross.  the one in back is a much lighter shade of purple.  the one in front has variations in how much purple overlays the yellow throat.  the three petals in front have more purple.  the three sepals in back have a cleaner more extensive yellow throat.  since this is the first year of bloom the flower patterns and color may shift and have a slightly different look next year.  so we shall just sit back and watch.  after judiciously placing a flag on the flower in question.  one that says keep watching me !  four images…

primitive beauty

Venus of Willendorf is a primitive beauty.  carved to a different standard.  it is not the Venus de Milo it is simply a different Venus, a different beholding of beauty.  so it is with the flower of the same name.  Venus of Willendorf is a primitive beauty of a flower.  two images

Purple, pinched, twisted and curly

With a title like that there should be the all too frequent …. why that’s unnatural.

Well in this case it is totally natural.  This blossom does it almost every day and in a fairly consistent manner.  Enjoy this purple beauty Venus of Willendorf
